Zoë Keating

She is a classically trained cellist producing her own albums while composing music for TV, film and ballet. Her instumental ambient-chillout melodies set a mellow atmosphere. Zoë Keating has one free track available on Last.fm, Exurgency, however the leading track from One Cello x 16: Natoma is also available to listen to in full.

2CELLOS

2CELLOS, a.k.a. Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, have been mentioned before. Last week they uploaded a new video from their upcoming album, a dual cello rendition of AC/DC’s Welcome to the Jungle.

The LP is said to come out soon (maybe this week). The track list looks really interesting.

And now I stumbled upon Misi Várnagy with his electric cello and loop station:
